I love spicy food. Love it. Last night at 2AM I nearly emptied out a quarter bottle of Yellowbird Habanero Sauce on a single slice of pizza. That’s how dangerous my tolerance for spicy food is.
When it comes to spicy chicken sandwiches, I will take a Wendy’s Spicy Chicken sandwich ANY DAY to the Chick-Fil-A Spicy Chicken Sandwich. It packs wayyyy more spice. Plus, the potato roll it comes on has a wonderful way of enhancing all that spice. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve devoured the old Wendy’s Spicy Chicken Sandwich while hungover. It has a magical way of making the ache of boozin’ go away.
Today Wendy’s announced that they’re bringing back their spiciest sandwich to date, the Jalapeño Fresco Spicy Chicken Sandwich. You’ll recall that they released it last year, but now they’re pushing it to participating locations along with their Ghost Pepper Fries:
Spicy lovers will appreciate the 10 different sources of heat in the Jalapeño Fresco Spicy Chicken Sandwich, which include red pepper, chili pepper, jalapeño, paprika, black pepper, cayenne, capsicum, habanero, red jalapeño and ghost pepper – one of the hottest chili peppers in the world.
The Jalapeño Fresco Spicy Chicken Sandwich features Wendy’s Spicy Chicken with its signature blend of spice and 100 percent all-white meat chicken breast, topped with fresh, diced jalapeños – seeds and all – and specially made ghost pepper sauce, and capped with a bakery-style, freshly toasted red jalapeño bun. The heat is complemented with savory flavors from warm, melty cheese sauce, delicious Colby Pepper Jack cheese and crunchy red onion.
The Ghost Pepper Fries are covered with a cheese sauce, diced, fresh jalapeños, shredded cheddar cheese and a ghost pepper sauce.
As a husky guy who dreams of spicy food, this is me right now after reading those paragraphs:
In a press release, Wendy’s says the the Jalapeño Fresco Spicy Chicken Sandwich has a suggested price of $4.99 and the Ghost Pepper Fries have a recommended price of $1.99.
